Hi there,

The most likely causes of this that the Redhat box is not configured to
allow X11 over SSH connections. To enable this, edit the file
at /etc/ssh/sshd_config on Redhat, and change the follow line;
X11Forwarding no
to
X11Forwarding yes

If this line does not exist, you will need to add it, along with the
following;
X11DisplayOffset 10

I hope you find this helpful.
